tools of slaughter;
one by one
by furtive means
to places where
other city visitors
A railway station,
a Jewish hostel,
two five star hotels,
other tourist places.
Book rooms, smuggle
hide their weapons in.
Their purpose is
by evil persons
to be a holy war,
its objective to
In places of business,
with many people busy
going, waiting, talking,
shopping, selling, laughing,
innocently enjoying life.
Was where they started
where they began their
reign of holy terror.
Bombs are thrown, grenades explode,
bullets sprayed, flying, hitting,
killing, maiming, slaughtering;
indiscriminately they take life as
coldly they execute, murder;
devoid of feeling they fulfil
their preordained and evil plan.
For two days they dodged, hid,
carried on their killing spree.
Mumbai comes to a standstill,
shocked by the inhumanity of
a cause that slaughters all it sees.
Who, why, what for’s are heard.
Accusations fly around.
Assassins know there is no return,
their mission suicidal, but heaven
promised, paradise a better life.
Surely this was a belief, a cause,
a misguided act of faith, a miasma
so they couldn’t see their wickedness!
They cannot feel, they cannot see,
they cannot hear a pity plea.
Programmed to hate, they couldn’t
stop, their slaughter of the innocent.
Lets now have a meeting a gathering
of all people, all faiths, creeds
casts, colours, nations and religions,
to foster love not hurt, give not take,
between all the peoples of this earth.
Let us all promote a belief, a faith
in the humanity and togetherness of us all.
The Slaughter of the Innocent
must stop now, not carry on and on.
